City Nation Place Global

6th Annual Conference


Place brand strategies for a more resilient future

Join us online for the 6th annual gathering of place brand and place marketing leaders. In a year like no other, we look forward to bringing together place leaders and experts to focus on how place brands, and place marketing, can effectively drive the recovery for place and tourism economies. Join us to be inspired by our keynote speakers and panellists sharing their experience and thoughts on recovery planning and thinking differently for a new world – and you can then drop in to virtual meet-the-speakers rooms to dig a little deeper! You will also have the opportunity to join with fellow delegates in Think Tank Roundtables, to discuss particular topics and learn from each other. Whilst we will miss seeing everyone in person, we are confident that the City Nation Place Global conference will provide the same opportunities to learn and build your network in this virtual environment as it would have done in a physical environment – we look forward to seeing you there…

This event is scheduled as part of the City Nation Place Congress – which brings together regionally specific events, the Global Congress, and the Global Awards. You can join as a delegate across different events within the Congress and you can also join as a team to ensure you learn together and get the most benefit from all the discussion group opportunities – group rates are available!
